Blue and Orange

August 25, 2010 Leave a comment

My latest achievement is blue and orange as in “The Earth is blue like an orange”.

These are two complementary colors, which means a very strong and vibrant association. This association is more often used in illustrations for children or to highlight an icon, a button on a website. In short, the result is an illustration that leaves no one indifferent and catches the eye 🙂

The purpose of these registration banners created for Global Volunteer Network is to attract the attention of visitors, the use of these two colors corresponds to our needs. A plane and the clouds for the blue and an idea of travel (volunteering to another country), an orange stripe for contrast:

A slightly different version with less blue and more green for the “Be the Change”. Indeed, this one is a training program for those wishing to grow their own organization, to change the world as depict by the tree:

Eat So They Can Website

June 13, 2010 3 comments

Wow, time has passed quickly. More than a month with no new posts yet I have been busy lately. Among others, I worked on the graphics of the Eat So They Can website on behalf of GVN Foundation.

Eat So They Can is an international event fundraiser organized by GVN Foundation. Each participant, or host, is organizing a meal for the day against global hunger on October 16 and performs fund raising until the date of the meal.

With my colleague we made several graphics for the dressing of the site, here is a small selection:

And here is the final version:

As you can see, I’ve subscribed as an host: Julie’s event and will organise a party at home for this great cause: Women’s empowerment the 16 October 2010. So if you want to support this cause too, participate to my fund raising now!
Thank you!

A new display for my personal website

Done! Here is the new display of my personal website: Frog n’ I kept the frog and the slogan and add a logotype with my domain name. Have a look:

Frog n’Cie Design – 2009

My host is PHPnux, one of the cheaper on Internet with a great quality of service. The contract includes 1GB disk space, 1 domain name, 1 MySQL database, PHP 4 and PHP 5, statistics, e-mails, and a great customer support for only 18 euro/year! It’s perfect! I can access to my files with FTP and manage all my account via a customized tool. But all is in french!

Something sounds wrong in this display… is it too dark? or less energizing? Let me know your feeling by adding a comment.

Web design

A little web skin created in June or July 2009 for my personal website: Conception et Réalisation Multimédia. This version (in french only) was developed with Google Site to present my work as a webdesigner, web developer and graphical designer.

To create the little frog and logo, I used Illustrator before to export it in Photoshop.

Grenouille - Frog
Little frog – 2009

I choose only one color (plus white and black) to create this website giving a feeling of simplicity and light to the visitor. The little frog, which is quite ruddy, has been added on the corner as a wink providing energy and vitamins. The frog eye color has been used on the O of the tittle to look like a frog eye. Have a look below:

Personal Website, Home Page – 2009

Google Site is a great CMS (Content Management System) to start a first website. It’s easy to customize the display and create various pages. But it becomes a little bit too restricted if you want to change the links in the bottom, to create an horizontal menu or to add a contact form. Recently, I decided to migrate my website in Drupal and to add an english version in the mean time. I’m still working on the display but I will show you this new version soon 🙂
